Those of you who have seen The Meatball Song will have seen a beautifully polished piece of cinematic art*. (Yes, the sound you just heard was a dozen cups of tea being snorted out of a dozen noses.)
Well, friends, appearances can be deceptive. Because, although the clip no doubt looked seamless and utterly professional to you (and now the sound you hear is a dozen pieces of biscuit being coughed up), in fact, it is a work of illusion.
The truth is, I'm a pretty lousy singer, an even worse dancer, and - as you will see from this Blooper reel, half the time I can't even walk well, either. As for miming... well, to be honest, I'm even typing this post out of sync.
So watch this Making Of The Meatball Song clip, and see me forget to sing at the appropriate time, fall off the balcony, fall over the dishwasher, get stuck in a wig, find it impossible to roll a meatball (which is not actually a meatball at all, but that's another story...) and attempt to deal with a wayward toddler who has strayed into the scene.
And remember: EFFORT, not quality, counts.
